BMW S 1000 RR takes fourth place in the Superstock Class with Race ABS and Dynamic Traction Control DTC at the 73rd Bol dÔÇÖOr.
Munich/Magny-Cours. With an outstanding fourth place in the Superstock Class, the new BMW S 1000 RR proved its prowess at the 73rd Bol dÔÇÖOr race in Magny-Cours. The very near-series bike impressively demonstrated its capabilities over the 24-hour racing distance.
The bike raced by the BMW Team ÔÇ×BMW Sikora Bily ProraceÔÇ£ and its riders Ireneusz Sikora, Thomas Polmiksovsky and Milos Czechihak under the direction of the Witec company was a purebred series production machine from the current endurance testing programme. Only a 24-litre tank for rapid fuelling, an Akrapocić racing exhaust system and a number of mounting parts for the prestigious 24-hour race had been fitted.
In this 24-hour classic, the new S 1000 RR also impressively proved the racing suitability of the DTC Dynamic Traction Control as well as of the Race ABS.
Gerhard Lindner, BMW Motorrad testing director:
"The S 1000 RR not only demonstrated its stability under these tough conditions, but also how much the Race ABS and the new DTC Dynamic Traction Control support the riders. The S 1000 RR is the only series production motorcycle in the world to offer two regulation systems which define the new yardstick for braking safety and acceleration even under racing conditions, especially on such extremely long and exhausting distances.ÔÇØ
